If you’re like millions of other motorists, you’re planning on taking a road trip over Labor Day weekend. While Labor Day is meant to celebrate the social and economic successes of workers located throughout the country, it’s also viewed as the unofficial end of summer, a time when school’s getting ready to start and summer road trips are a thing of the past. That’s why so many drivers take advantage of the long holiday weekend to get out of town one last time before colder weather settles in.

Before you hit the road, you should bring your vehicle into our BMW dealership to have it serviced. We’ll make sure your vehicle is operating the way it’s supposed to. We’ll also ensure that you’re caught up with the routine maintenance your automobile needs to stay in good shape.

Whether you drive a 2017 BMW vehicle or an older model, it’s critical that you have it serviced before you leave for a road trip. Doing so will help ensure you, your passengers and the motorists you’ll share the road with will remain safe on the roadway during your trip.

In addition to having your vehicle serviced, you should make sure you have some essential items in your car before you head out of town. Here are some of the things you should put in your car in case an emergency occurs during your upcoming road trip:

  • Non-perishable snacks and beverages
  • Jumper cables
  • Flashlight
  • Flares or reflective triangles
  • Blanket
  • Fully stocked first-aid kit
  • Extra containers of windshield wiper fluid and coolant

While it’s important for you to make sure you have some essentials packed away in your automobile, you should start getting ready for your holiday road trip by bringing your car into our BMW service center near Lynnfield, MA.
